    Ok here's the further testing:
    I have the SWMLine dish>PI>diplexer for OTA> 2way splitter (Single power pass) >2 4way (ALL powerpass) splitters..

    When the HR21-700 is rebooted it will not detect the SWM..
    Here's the connections I have tried:
    4way#1: hr20#1 4way#2: HR20#2 and HR21--- HR21 no signal
    4way#1: hr20#1 4way#2: HR21--- HR21 works (HR20#2 disconnected)
    4way#1: hr20#1 and HR21 4way#2: HR20#2--- HR21 no signal
    4way#1: hr20#1 4way#2: HR20#2 and Non powerpass splitter to HR21( only one leg used)--- HR21 works

    Looks to me that the HR21 when connected to powerpass splitters somehow sees the other reciever and gets confused.. this results in it not detecting the SWMLine.
    Thinking this is more CE related now..

    Well one more update..
    The one upstairs has been runing fine but just noticed the other day it can't recieve channels 3(2) or 8(7) OTA.. did some playing and I believe it's related to the cabling.. ended up getting 8(7) back but still no 3(2)..
    Weired that the sat stuff works fine and not the lower freq OTA.. might have to get ambitous and pull some new wire..
